Kimi Raikkonen returning to McLaren

Alonso may take the seat occupied at the moment by Kimi Raikkonen, world champion. Raikkonen will not leave F1, he might return to McLaren, his ex team.

Raikkonen said in a Telegraph interview 'If for some reason I am not at Ferrari next season I know I’ll have a seat at another team in the paddock. It’s not a problem. Other teams want me'.

'I’m too young to retire. I have a contract with Ferrari for next season. If I didn’t want to race next season I would not have signed a contract' he added.

He didn't mention the return to his former team, rumors started after Martin Whitmarsh - McLaren team boss was caught by BBC affirming 'Kimi’s really raised his game and all weekend has done a great job and Heikki has always been a fantastic team player and a good asset in our team but his race pace hasn’t been good enough'.
